You have already made the brilliant decision to go solar.
Solar batteries are designed to capture the surplus energy usually exported to the grid, storing it for use later in the day to save you from buying in electricity when the sun isn’t shining.
Here are some of the benefits of including a quality solar storage battery from Bright Sky Solar to your PV system
Up until very recently we believed that battery storage was too expensive, too bulky and battery life was poor to say the least.
Over the last 3 years our existing customers have often enquired as to whether it was a good time to have a battery storage system and we always replied with an emphatic “no” and suggested that they wait until the price dropped and the product improved.
Now however some systems are vastly superior and have a much better guarantee in terms of years and cycles.
When choosing a system we need to look at the length of warranty, build quality, aesthetics, space required to house the system and of course value for money.
After years of keeping a critical eye on battery storage systems we believe we have a system that ranks highly on all of these and that is why we chose Soltaro.
A large portion of the energy your solar panels produce will be exported back to the grid.
In standby mode 90% of the electricity you generate could be exported.
It is assumed that you export 50% of what you generate and this is what you are paid for by your energy supplier at around 5 pence per unit regardless of how much energy is actually exported.
Your energy supplier will then sell it back to you at a much higher rate (typically 12 pence per unit) when you require more energy than you are generating.
It makes sense therefore to harness this energy, prevent it from going back to the grid and use it yourself.
Battery storage enables you store your excess generation for you to use later when your consumption is higher than your generation.
